Car Park closure - Sunday 16 June

Please note that the car parks directly outside Lakeside will be closed for the morning of Sunday 16 June, to allow the Nottingham 10K race to pass through. If you're planning to visit us or use Highfields Park, we would recommend entering and parking in one of the car parks near the West or North entrances and walking the remainder of the way to Lakeside. You can see a campus map here and see which roads will be closed/affected by the race here.

Tall Stories

Thursday 28 November - Sunday 08 December and
Tuesday 24 December - Tuesday 31 December

Billy has everything a young goat could need – and more besides. On New Year’s Eve, Billy is looking forward to the annual visit of the legendary Snow Dragon, who will bring him even more goodies...

But when Billy bumps into some hungry wolves in the forest, New Year’s Day seems a long way off. How will Billy escape? And has he been naughty or nice?

Toe-tapping songs and lots of laughs for everyone aged 3 and up, from the company that brought you ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘The Snail and the Whale’.
